isn't your house heated though? Surely the water would adjust to the right temprature....I dont have a heater and my Bettas are fine. :)

How would having a power outage cause your fish to die anyways???
Just wondering.....
I live in an apartment in a very rural area, we don't have power outages a lot, but when we do, the power... flickers.... I guess thats the right word, it goes out, then kicks back on, then off, etc....
as I stated, Im guessing that either heaters did not turn on (broke) and it got to cold, and before tossing the plug and heaters (they were on an extended plug... extension thing?) and before tossing I checked it and it was not working (I tested in a seperate plug with a lamp that I know works)
EDIT
My apartment IS heated, but if the power was flickering like I think it was (when my neighbors get back Im asking them) then the heater could have been off for hours and they were in my bedroom which has two wide windows (screwy setup)

Have what looked at?
Its part of the package deal for living in my area, sucky sucky place, lmao, but once college is done I am GONE
I would have, I normally do, but I spent the first week with my BFs family, which is a two hour drive from my apartment, then I went for a week with my dad.... an hour drive from my BFs parents house... all of which is in an unheated car... besides, at the time, I have over 20 fish, all of which were in 2.5 gallons or more
I've bought new extension plugs, and orders new heaters so I can toss all of the marine (whatever they are called) and switch over to the same kind in my 10 gallon

ohh....yeah when it flickers it can cause some appliances (or in this case, heaters, and even tank lights) to "seize" or go wonky... that sucks :(

Yeah :/ my newer heaters did great, but now that I think about it, the older ones have suffered through a few of the "flickers"

I make sure to have surge protectors, and if I am home (if lucky) I unpug absolutely everything D: my bettas can take temperature changes just fine, but I'd hate having my heaters flip out :( I wonder...if there is a time you should be getting new heaters? o.o like...after a certain age, or a certain beating...
